    If you don't know the place you might just stay at the bar downstairs, huge mistake! Enjoy a dinner upstairs or in the garden, with live piano and great cocktails.

    Bobo is a Swiss Army knife of awesome. From fun dates at the bar, romantic dinner or for a group/private events, the cocktails are amazing, energy is always great and food is delicious and creative.

    Have Brunch at this charming decorated restaurant in the West Village. Portions are smallish so order a lot. Then soak up the sun in their secret garden while you enjoy delicious ice cream sandwiches.

    A date spot with ambiance. If its nice out, ask for seating in the garden. If it's happy hour, take advantage of $6 craft cocktails and $1 oysters (aphrodisiacs!).

    A beautiful space, you must check out the garden area upstairs. Great happy hour that includes good cocktails (but only inside).
  • Lady Zombie S.
    LOVE this place - they were awesome to me and my group on PRIDE SUNDAY (despite our exuberant energy and wild costumes)... and the bartender JP is a doll. :)

    This place is breathtaking-- quaint, charming and full of energy. Beware, the margarita is spicy! Rosé is excellent.

    Great spot with delicious food (if a bit overpriced). But the ambience in the garden is second to none. Snag a table up there of you can.

    Really cute and cozy adventure! Tiny on the inside but full of warm energy and quaint, funky details. The tables are mismatched and weatherbeaten, the food and service are polished and wonderful.

    Service was absolutely phenomenal. Got the halibut over wild mushroom farro: exquisite. Great ambiance. Highly recommend checking Bobo out.

    Nice ambiance, beautiful setting, excellent service. Poor value (the tiniest slice of a chicken breast was $26). Left hungry.

    The food and service overall very good. I'm pretty sure this is a repurposed house, which is really cool. However, beware the third floor gets really loud

    Our party of 9 got a table after waiting for about 10mins w/o a reservation. The waiter's very nasty and rushed us to order everything at the same time because there's another reservation right after.

    Come for the food but stay for the atmosphere. Bobo has a Victorian vibe, and try to get seating in their gorgeous room upstairs.

    Do not be suckered into the back room. The main dining room is where you want to be. I was bummed that we got seated there, though the food was good.

    For dessert, try the Burnt Butter Panna Cotta! Aside from extremely delicious, its very unique, with distinct flavors that all complement each other. A lighter, easier to digest choice.

    Tip number one, the patio is not a patio as spoken from the hostess. It's enclosed meaning it's just another room in the restaurant.

    The rude waiter sent another girl to take care of us right after he's done taking orders. I really appreciate her hospitality but I won't come back again since the first one ruined my grad party.
